Abstract :

We describe a case of severe retinopathy of prematurity in the anemic donor twin with Twin Anemia-Polycythemia Sequence that was managed with the novel treatment of intrauterine blood transfusions. The fellow polycythemic twin was managed with intrauterine venesection and developed only mild retinopathy of prematurity. Thus despite intrauterine improvement of the twins???¢?????????? hemodynamic conditions, the risk of retinopathy of prematurity development remained.
